      done it but do a google search on it. It's pretty interesting to hear all sides. (Even though I only think one side is right and that's the animals side.)

      But athlete's have complained about the dogs disrupting their practice, attendee's have complained about everything from being swarmed to being bitten to trudging through piles of poop.

      Not every country warehouses their strays the way the US does, they often have thousands of dogs and cats who roam the streets.

      So rather than propose a boycott days before the event begins, I would think coming up with some humane solutions a year in advance would be more helpful.

        Maybe we should be looking at the negative impact the Olympics has on cities. Maybe the problem is all the money and focus that goes into cosmetic "improvements" and expensive buildings that aren't useful after th Olympics are gone.  

        Maybe the problem is the Olympics being held in places that do not have the infrastructure for it.
